8:02 am
and cool temperatures back into the 60s. here is where we are right now. here are your current temperatures. if slowly but surely we begin to seek early morning warmth. in the red we have indicated where we're expecting 90 degree weather. a solid amount of 80's throughout the day. no matter where you are, a comfortable afternoon with clear skies and warm temperatures, even in san francisco where we are anticipating upper seventies. all of that changes come this weekend. we have a system slowly making its way into the
8:03 am
pacific northwest. come saturday, that is where we will see temperatures cooled down. the 7 day forecast, we go from the mid-90s tupper '70s by friday. slyke sprinkles for the weekend. it looks like more so on sunday and saturday. bay area wide we might see some sprinkles and light rain on monday and tuesday.. let's go over to the traffic department. >> traffic continues to develop and grow. we have watched the 880 approach continue to back up. we are not slow around the berkeley
8:04 am
career but we are looking at a 20 minute drive time. the san mateo bridge ride, an accident at mid span. even though it was reported on the shoulder and it just occurred, you can see that it is really slowing the ride in the westbound direction. this could be turning into a hot spot. a lot of people were using it as an alternate to the bay bridge. it looks as though things were starting to grind to a halt coming out of the toll plaza and heading westward. we will try to get more details on whether or not the crash is still blocking lanes. at last check it was near mid span and in the right-hand shoulder. for your golden gate bridge ride, light and easy traffic, getting heavier from the commute through marin county but still not a hot spot between 37 and central san rafael. a check on the ride as we get in the traffic maps. 80 still doing pretty
8:05 am
well for the east shore freeway as is 580, 680 into the san ramon valley. westbound 580 remains heavy out of the altemont into livermore. stop the traffic still doing pretty well. a few pockets of slow and go. no hot spots, that is good news. we have been tracking a potential hot spot that has not turned into a big problem yet even the university avenue is closed just off the dumbarton bridge. the bay from the expressway, most people are using willow road as an alternate route to get to 101. now, let's check in the newsroom with the latest from justine waldman. >> this is the second day in the trial of the doctor of michael jackson. it is just getting underway in las angeles. prosecutors in this involuntary manslaughter trial are trying to move their case towards the events that led to the death of the pop star. testimony
8:06 am
will continue today with a bodyguard and personal assistant. dr. conrad murray is accused of giving tax and a lethal dose of a powerful anesthetic although his attorneys are saying jackson gave the drug propofol to himself. we will let you know when the trial starts and get you some live pictures from inside the courtroom. >> a little insight in the trial, our legal analyst michael korda's up. good morning. good morning. the family was upset that the doctor was charged with involuntary manslaughter and not murder. >> keep in mind, murder, you have to intended to kill someone and certainly, dr. murray did not intend to kill michael jackson. that is why it is in a voluntary manslaughter. it could have been a second degree murder, where you can be charged with willful disregard for human life, but apparently the district attorney did not feel that was a case.
8:07 am
>> what do you think, after watching the trial so far and the setup of both sides, what is the believability of each side's argument? >> i think the district attorney, if you were to say anyone is a head, it would be the district attorney. they waited out a case where when the emergency technicians came in and they ask dr. murray what michael jackson and just it, he left out propofol. when they went to the emergency room, the doctors in the er asked him, what did you give him and again he left out propofol. that is not good. >> what kind of jail time to start the murray facing if he is convicted?
8:08 am
>> if he is convicted he is facing four years. i will tell you, there are a lot of people who say he will not do jail time, but with this judge, i have spoken with many attorneys who have been in front of him, if he is convicted, he can plan on spending some time in state prison. the other thing i find interesting, security yesterday in the courtroom, as in a security is very high, one of jackson's walked into the courtroom, not the courtroom, but down the hall, they were with their own security and a woman came charging up to them and caused quite a stir. i think you can look for security getting even tighter. michael, thanks a lot. >> we will be right back as the kron 4 morning news
8:09 am
8:10 am
8:11 am
>> , tracking a new hot spot on the kron 4 morning news. the san mateo bridge. here it is westbound. traffic at a standstill an injury accident blocking the left-hand lane as well as the shoulder. the drive time would normally be about 15 minutes but now it is up to 25 minutes in the westbound direction. the dumbarton bridge not a great alternate
8:12 am
route because it has its own problems. i will tell you about that coming up.
8:13 am
8:14 am
>> welcome back, wall street erasing earlier gains. a smaller drop than expected coming out for august orders as we take a look at factory orders, they fell less than expected. the dow was up over 60, down 20 and now back up, up 18 to 11,209. >> another developing story,
8:15 am
police are investigating a second grade that has been reported at st. mary's college in moraga. we are outside the gates of the school taking a look at the reaction to the two attacks that have happened in the past two weeks. craig skalar, our a solo reporter is out there with the latest. >> students are coming in full force, class's began at 8:00 a.m.. this rate was the second rape in two weeks. the other on september 13th. in each case the students knew their assailants. this is a very remote campus. perhaps far away from urban areas. it becomes a shock when something like this happens.. >> this is an incident
8:16 am
between people who knew one another. we believe that the best thing we can do is raise awareness. we have a 24-hour sexual assaults hot line. report abuse as soon as the incident occurs. >> there will be a rally at 1:00 p.m. today to pull people together. and a lot of people who live on campus here. it is almost like a small community. it really struck people. police are still investigating. democrat, in the light of these cases, are they at all looking at co-ed dorms and
8:17 am
the status of dorm security? are those issues that are looking at? >> asked about security, they said they have a strong situation with security and will not change that. they said co-ed dorms have happened for a long time without problem. they believe this is a personal responsibility, basic people need to be more aware of there's a tuition in terms of trust and being able to handle themselves. let people know when there is a problem. easier said than done. >> we are tracking a hot spot. there are no good alternates. 1st take a closer look. traffic is at a standstill. this will stretch for a few miles. the
8:18 am
ambulance has been cancelled. there are other emergency vehicles trying to get to the scene, you can see how long this will take to clear. how they will get there is the question. backed up on all land on the approach. normally a 50 minute drive, it is now 26 minutes but could actually be longer because censors have just updated. the reason i mention this is because the ride to the bay bridge is not a very good one either this morning. it is backed up to the macarthur maze and even the 80 approach is slow. it is not a great auction. a 22 minute drive time coming out of the macarthur maze. 880 is better. 14 there 16 minutes but still not a good alternate. the dumbarton bridge has had its own share of problems. your ride on
8:19 am
